NGPON2 Technology and Standards
"Tutorial overview of the latest generation of PON technology standards nearing completion in ITU-T. NGPON2 offers a capacity of 40Gbit/s by exploiting multiple wavelengths at DWDM channel spacing and tunable transceiver technology in the ONUs"
Derek NESSET, British Telecom, UK
Derek Nesset leads research into future optical access networks within BT’s Research & Technology organisation. He joined BT in 1989 and spent several years developing photonic components for fibre optic communication systems. Following this, he worked on advanced fibre optic system technologies up to 100Gbit/s. This included the first field demonstration of 40Gbit/s transmission over BT’s fibre infrastructure. In 2000, Derek joined Marconi where he was responsible for the ROADM subsystem development for ultra-long-haul DWDM. He returned in 2003 to pursue research interests with BT on enhanced PON systems for fibre access. Most recently, he has focussed on next generation PON technologies and standards and actively contributes to progressing NGPON2 in both FSAN and ITU-T. He chairs the NG-PON task group in FSAN.
Derek has a BSc in Physics, an MSc in Telecom Engineering and is a Senior Member of the IEEE. In 2014, Derek was awarded an Honorary Professorship at Bangor University. He has contributed over 90 journal and conference publications and has 8 patents. He has participated in the OFC, OECC and ACP conference subcommittees and chaired the Optical Access subcommittee for OFC 2014.

Next-Generation Fibers for Space-Division-Multiplexed Transmissions
We review the most recent advances on next-generation fibers for space-division-multiplexed transmissions, and we provide some insights in the challenges ahead to further improve their performances.
Pierre SILLARD, Prysmian group, France
Pierre Sillard received the engineering diploma of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Télécom ParisTech, in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in Optics from the University of Paris VI in 1998, in collaboration with Thales Research & Technology, on the subject of non-linear interactions in laser resonators.
He has been working in the field of optical fibers and optical networks since 1999, and he is now leading the Novel Products group of the Fiber R&D department of Prysmian Group in Haisnes, France. He has been involved in the development and the deployment of new fibers for FttH, long haul, and local area networks. His current research interests include low-loss and large-effective-area single-mode fibers, few-mode and multi-core fibers, and multi-mode fibers.
He has published more than 140 papers and has been granted more than 60 patents. In 2004, he received the TR35 innovator award from MIT Technology Review for the design of fibers now being used in very-high-capacity communications systems. He is a member of the OSA and IEEE societies and he serves as a reviewer and committee member of several journals and conferences.
